Specially written to be used on the move and to be stopped and started with ease, this series is ideal for use on the train, in the car, or around the house - in fact anywhere, any time. By the end of this 4-hour, all audio course, the student will have a working vocabulary of some 400 essential words and phrases and will feel confident about speaking (and understanding!) Spanish. Two bilingual coaches individually and jointly take students through this carefully structured, all-audio course with easy-to-understand texts, explanations, examples and speaking practice. No books are used. No 'homework' is required. Everything is learned by listening and speaking. Following the highly successful method of her previous books, the material is presented in the same light-hearted and entertaining style which has made Elisabeth Smith a market leader in language learning for the last 12 years.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
I cannot understand why all those Spanish courses or even Italian they teach you singular you in a form of formal YOU which is absolute useless when talking with friends. However the narration is quite OK and I did not feel the annoyance like with Michel Thomas. However when it comes to grammar this book is not the best option. It is not a substitution for a Spanish course. This is for you to learn some words and phrases. If you are an old school student with a book, workbook and audio section with exercises and real grammar explanation I would not recommend to buy this audiobook at all.
